About Us

We are a mother-daughter duo of do-ers.
This whole blog partnership started between my mom and I because we are constantly changing, updating, and sharing our creative thoughts.  From years of following other blogs, watching HGTV, reading magazines, and just plain ol' winging it we thought it was time to document our adventures together. 

Meet Sarah:

Hello!  My name is Sarah.  I'm a mid-20 something Southern California renter.  I live with my boyfriend Cody of 5 years and am slowly trying to update our rental into a home. 

Meet Marilee:

Hi!  I'm Marilee.  I'm a 50-something Southern California homeowner.  I live with my husband, Steve and my dog Katie.  I have always loved design even from the early days of paper dolls from the Sears catalog.  I am very very fortunate that I am married to a craftsman who can duplicate anything I can throw his way.  Sarah shares this love as we also share our creative thoughts with you and hope that you will share along with us, sometimes you just need a fresh eye to get a new perspective.  We are excited about meeting each one of you and welcome you to our little corner of the world and look forward to sharing thoughts with you as we become friends.  Welcome!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Marilee and Sarah
